Hawzah News Agency (Mashhad, Iran) - At the conference of Cultural Messengers of the Revolution, which was held with the participation of a number of selected students from Khorasan Razavi international domain, Reza Saeedi said that if a movement or a transformation lacks cultural infrastructures, it will not achieve the desired outcome, and continued, "The difference between the Islamic Revolution of Iran with other movements is based on Islam and justice, and, relying on this, it has been able to stand for 40 years against all opponents."
"The Islamic awakening or "Arab Spring" is the name of a series of uprisings that took place in various Arab countries, and it is clear that this movement did not achieve its goals due to lack of a unanoumus management and cultural infrastructures", he added.
Noting that many believe that the Islamic Republic of Iran is trying to export the Islamic revolution through military intervention to other countries, Saeedi emphasized, "The fact is that the issuance of a revolution is the issuance of culture and civilization, and if we strengthen our cultural infrastructure, we will definitely issue the message of the Islamic Revolution without any military action."
Referring to the fact that revolution alone means transformation and when the word culture is added, the content changes, he continued, "Therefore, it is necessary to promote the Islamic Revolution by promoting, upgrading and reviving Islamic values."
In another part of his speech, the chancellor of Imam Reza (as) International University said, "We are trying to work on connecting with Muslim countries in order to admit more students and professors. In line with realizing Astan Quds Razavi's policies in attracting the maximal foreign students, fortunately, it has managed to help improve the scientific level of the province in the last few years through establishment of a scientific department and the attraction of professors."
Referring to the initiation of privileged and disadvantaged student scholarship, he said, "Currently, hundreds of students are studying at this scholarship, including Afghanistan and Iraq, which includes tens of students so far."

"Imam Reza (as) International University is trying to launch medical, pharmaceutical and dental disciplines by the next year and add to the number of academic fields", he said.
"By now, 400 international students are studying at the university," he said, adding that "effective steps have been taken in the international arena, and we are trying to continue this path with greater strength for more success."
It is notable that the ceremony was held at the Islamic Research Foundation of Astan Quds Razavi by contribution of the management of the non-Iranian pilgrims' affairs of Astan Quds Razavi and Imam Reza (as) International University.
